What is financial planning?
Financial Planning is an ongoing process to help you make sensible decisions about money that can help you achieve your goals in life; it's not just about buying products like life insurance, a retirement annuity or an investment.
It might involve putting appropriate wills in place to protect your family, thinking about how your family will manage without your income should you fall ill or die prematurely, spending money differently, but it involves thinking about all of these things together i.e. your 'plan'.
You can build a plan on your own, or if your needs are more complex you might want the help of a Financial Planner.
